When: Tue., May 17, 7-9 p.m. 2016
Richard Neitzel will discuss his book, "Ernst and Tillie". Based on a true story, "Ernst and Tillie" unfolds against the backdrop of the dawning of the 20th century, a time that witnessed the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair as well as racial strife in towns big and small. There's lots of baseball, lots of train travel, lots of folks who love or hate the new horseless carriages. And there's Ernst and Tillie, weighing life's decisions, struggling to free themselves from their parent's generation, and eager to reap the promise of the new era.
